I've never seen any on Eibach Springs - anyone have any?

haha no problem, it's not like I had mentioned it earlier on. Yeah, the first pic looks higher than in person I feel like, and the suspension is really outstretched on the passenger side of the car in the on-track pic, so it's hard to tell. Gotta get some new shocks I think!

Here's another one:

That pic looks great, suspension looks good there.

Offset?

The wheels are square, 18x9.5 et35 with 12mm spacers in the rear. However the fronts currently have 255/35 tires while the rear have 265/35, kinda odd I know but I heard 265 up front may be a tight fit with stock camber.

It's because they made them stronger than the ARCs. It is probably not necessary for most though as the ARCs are plenty strong.

I wish they made a light weight spec EC-7 as well.

Yeah I'm curious to see if I'll even need to run any spacer in the rear. My rear EC7 is ET25 19x10 with a 275 tire. I don't think it'll need one though.

Just for clarification, a bit of misinformation here. The wheels in the photos I quoted are 18x9.5 +22 (profile 3).
